Help Needed With eBay Listing - Java Script Workaround

I have used Coffecup’s Responsive Site Designer to create a simple responsive eBay listing.

Part of the RSD html code includes java script (see JS code below) But eBay will not allow me to use this code in the listing.

document.createElement( “picture” );

If I remove this java script code from the html, the eBay listing is still responsive on mobile devices and displays great using Firefox and Chrome on a desktop computer.
But when the eBay listing is viewed using Internet Explorer or Safari on a desktop computer, the browsers do not display any of the images.

Is there a way to run a simple loader function in the eBay listing to link to js/picturefill.min.js on my server without eBay identifying it as Javascript?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I know absolutely ‘nothing’ about JS or jQuery.

Hey silverwashed,

Hmmm this isn’t something that has come up before. As you may know Matt also runs the WidgetChimp site which allows you to create responsive ebay listings and hasn’t come across this problem before.

Unless someone with more Javascript knowledge can help out here.
